Smile New AnnaLift 05/25/19 - 05/31/19

Hello aArtists!

It’s time for another challenge from Anna Aspnes. The AnnaTeam selects one creative page from the Anna gallery as the weekly ‘AnnaLift.’ Be inspired, create your own ‘AnnaLift,’ upload your page to the Anna gallery and include it here in this forum thread. Upload your page by Friday 05.31.19 by 8:00 pm EST with the title, ‘AnnaLift. ’ One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $5.00 GiftKard to Anna’s shop.

HOW IT WORKS: Each Saturday the AnnaTeam posts one creative page from the Anna gallery as the weekly ‘AnnaLift.’ Check out the inspiration page and decide what speaks to you. Is it the design, the color, the wordART, or maybe the photo? Then enjoy artfully playing—there is no right or wrong way to ArtPlay.

Choose ONE idea to lift or choose it ALL and lift it completely. Be inspired, create your ‘AnnaLift’ and then upload your page to the Anna gallery, plus include it here in this forum thread. It would be great if you could link back to your page in the gallery too!

Anna’s products mix well with so many kits/designers and Anna welcomes you to include these with your Anna Products on your AnnaLift page.

If you’ve never challenged yourself to an AnnaLift—just do it!
If you’ve never posted or shared your AnnaLift—just do it!
If you have time to leave some love for someone in the gallery—do it too!
(Your kind words may inspire and encourage someone!)


Brothers by ValeJules

Nostalgic, modern and edgy aptly describe this week’s lift. A vintage photograph of two charming children centered in the middle draws you into the layout. Instead of typical sepia tones, the unusual color combination of pink, rust and peach infuse a current look to the heritage design. A black and white duplicate of the young pair adds a dynamic visual contrast all while creating a sense of depth and perspective. Spots of texture embedded within the portrait create an old-fashion patina that simulates the passage and decay of time. In the background, brushwork of trees fashions a barren landscape echoing the emptiness of loved ones lost. Watercolor stains under the children establish an artistic base and effectively ground the art. This extremely talented designer not only composed a stunning remembrance of time gone by, but also commemorated its loss with a hauntingly beautiful pathos that projects an artistic, contemporary flair.

Thank you, ValeJules, for sharing your inspirational design and creativity.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of • Showcase your favorite non-human, a family pet or include something furry, scaly or feathered in your art.
• Use a vintage photo as your focal art or a photo from a time gone by.
• Duplicate part of your focal and use it somewhere in your layout.
• Try an unusual color palette for a heritage design like pink and gray, blue and white, etc.
• Add a black and white image to contrast with a colored photo.
• Integrate texture somewhere in your background.
• Use brushes as a design element in your design.

• ArtPlay Palette Elysium

• ArtPlay Palette Sunkissed

• ArtPlay Palette Festal

• ArtPlay Palette Amidst

• ArtPlay MiniPalette Ariose

• ArtsyTransfers Rougir

• Trees No. 4

Upload your page by Friday at 8:00 pm (EST) with the title, ‘AnnaLift ’ and one page will be randomly selected to win a $5 GiftKard to Anna's store." The winner will be posted here on SATURDAY.

We hope our AnnaLift inspires your creativity. You know we always LOVE to see how you ArtPlay.

Thanks for ArtPLAY-ing with us!

I couldn't come up with a good subject for this lift, but lifted the colors and textures.
